RECAP: Sherbrooke's Win Streak Starts and Ends Against Halifax

By (Ashley Hennigar) HALIFAX – The Sherbrooke Phoenix were coming into tonight’s game as winners of 5 straight. That streak began 12 days ago when your Halifax Mooseheads were in the middle of a 3-in-3 Quebec road trip and visiting Sherbrooke. After 40 minutes of play in that game, the two teams were tied at 4 goals a piece but the Phoenix ended up getting 3 goals to win the game 7-4. Despite the bucketful of penalties that we handed out during the match-up, mostly because of fights, Halifax was able to skate away with the victory tonight on the back of Kevin Resop. He didn’t face many shots for the first 25 minutes but was pretty strong considering there was a lack of defense at times during the game. In an interesting twist both of the Mooseheads tough guys, Kelly Bent and Brandon Vuic were in the lineup this evening. Normally the two players don’t play in the same game but Coach Ducharme probably wanted to have a physical aspect to this match-up. Vuic didn’t take long to show his toughness, getting in a fight against Owen Bennington just 8 minutes into the game. Captain Ryan Falkenham came to the aid of one of his teammates after Jeremy Roy hit Bent in the head. Raphael Lafontaine skated over and jumped those two players so Kelly got up and fought Lafontaine. All the fights during the game were pretty good ones and seemed to mostly be won by the Mooseheads.
